I just consider that sort of thing was more or less typical of their matchup.
He needs the points to keep alive the small chance of getting #1 later in the year. Plus I really don't want him to lose to a freaking lucky loser. It'd be really embarassing for his grand slam quarterfinal streak to ense that way.
